Homicide units are investigating after a man was shot and killed in the parking deck of a downtown Atlanta hotel Saturday afternoon, police said.

The victim was shot multiple times in the parking deck at 400 West Peachtree St., which belongs to the Twelve hotel.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office identified him Sunday as 28-year-old Bernard Gibson.

A preliminary investigation suggests the shooting was the result of a drug deal gone wrong shortly after 4 p.m., police department spokeswoman Stephanie Brown said.

  • David Ryan Adams is a 44-year-old singer-songwriter born in Jacksonville, North Carolina. He has had a long career across multiple genres and musical acts. He is also the subject of a New York Times expose on numerous accusations he psychologically abuses women. Background Adams first came on the music scene in an alt-country band he founded called Whiskeytown. The group released three major albums, making it big with “Strangers Almanac” in 1997. The group split in 2000, after what a Guardian story called a “particularly gruesome Michigan show.” >> Ryan Adams covers Bryan Adams and the internet can't get enough Solo career Adams’ first solo album, “Heartbreaker,” was a hit, especially with critics. A Pitchfork review called it “a startling 15-song masterpiece.” His follow-up, “Gold,” was also a hit and earned him three Grammy nominations. However, as the Guardian article put it, “Then something went askew… (he) got a reputation for being a boozy, druggy brat.” At one point, Adams left a scathing message with profanities on the answering machine of the music critic for the Chicago Sun-Times. Since then he has performed with the band The Cardinals and done more solo work. He is known for his 2015 release “1989,” a song-for-song alt-country cover album of Taylor Swift’s album “1989.” He is a prolific producer, working with Willie Nelson and Fall Out Boy. He has also worked with Weezer, Norah Jones and Counting Crows. Abuse allegations On Wednesday, the New York Times published a story detailing allegations of abuse against Adams. “In interviews, seven women and more than a dozen associates described a pattern of manipulative behavior in which Adams dangled career opportunities while simultaneously pursuing female artists for sex,” Joe Coscarelli and Melena Ryzik wrote. >> Read more trending news  For example, 20-year-old musician Phoebe Bridgers told the Times that Adams invited her to his studio. She said he praised her music, and the two had a short relationship. However, she said, when she broke off the relationship, Adams rescinded an offer to be the opening act on his European tour. One of the women who talked to the Times was Adams’ ex-wife, actress and singer Mandy Moore. She said he psychologically abused her and blocked her progress as a musician. They divorced in 2016. Megan Butterworth, who was engaged to Adams recently, also called him “controlling and emotionally abusive.” She told the Times he tried to isolate her “socially and professionally.” They broke up in 2018. Adams allegedly corresponded with a fan as well, starting when she was 14. She said he exposed himself during video calls on Skype.  According to texts reviewed by the Times, Adams questioned her about her age and sometimes she gave a false, older one.  In one text, he told the girl,” And tell me that your mom is not gonna kill me if she finds out we even text.”  Adams called the article “inaccurate.” Read more here.
  • Want to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease? Pushups may be able to help, according to a new report. >> Read more trending news Researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health recently conducted a study, published in JAMA Network Open, to determine the relationship between pushups and heart disease, which can lead to heart failure, heart attacks and strokes. To do so, they examined health data from 1,104 active male firefighters collected from 2000 to 2010. The subjects, who were around 40 years old, completed annual physical examinations and health and medical questionnaires. The analysts also measured the participants’ pushup capacity and their performance on the treadmill. During the 10-year assessment, there were 37 incidents related to cardiovascular disease. All but one of the events occurred in men who completed 40 or fewer pushups at the beginning of the trial. After further analysis, the scientists calculated that men who could do more than 40 pushups had a 96 percent reduced risk of cardiovascular disease events compared with those who were able to do less than 10. “Our findings provide evidence that pushup capacity could be an easy, no-cost method to help assess cardiovascular disease risk in almost any setting,” first author Justin Yang said in statement.  Furthermore, pushup capacity was more strongly associated with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease events than treadmill performance. The team did note some limitations. They only evaluated middle-aged men, so results may differ for women or men of other ages.  Nevertheless, they believe their findings are strong.  “This study,” senior author Stefanos Kales said, “emphasizes the importance of physical fitness on health, and why clinicians should assess fitness during clinical encounters.”
  • Snowy conditions led to a multiple-vehicle wreck Saturday that left traffic at a standstill for hours along Donner Pass.  >> Read more trending news  The accident blocked multiple lanes of eastbound I-80 around 11:04 a.m., according to Caltrans.  Drivers were seen standing outside of their vehicles as they waited for traffic to move again as a snowstorm blanketed the area.  The vehicles were removed about an hour later, Caltrans said.
  • An intoxicated woman was removed from a flight after becoming disruptive and upset for having to sit next to a toddler.  >> Read more trending news  Valerie Gonzalez, 32, was removed Thursday from a JetBlue flight to Las Vegas before takeoff, WCJB reported.  'I'm not sitting next to a (expletive) 3-year-old. I've been drinking all day,' Gonzalez said, according to Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputies.  Then she went to a seat she was not assigned to.  Passengers took video of the incident as it unfolded.  'Oh, you want to (expletive) tape this, make this viral, (expletive)?' Gonzalez says in the video.  Eventually she grabs her bags, blows kisses to the other passengers and leaves the plane when the flight crew asks for deputies to be called to the plane.  Gonzalez tried to return shortly after and hit a JetBlue employee who tried to stop her, WCJB reported.  Gonzalez spat at passengers, JetBlue employees and deputies as she was being taken into custody, WCJB reported. She stopped when officers requested a spit mask.  She was arrested and charged with battery. 
  • Just when you thought a resolution could be found and wide receiver Antonio Brown would be able to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers next season, he goes to Twitter and burns more bridges.  Brown solicited questions and the first he responded to asked about the conflict between him and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. “No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect! He has a owner mentality like he can call out anybody including coaches. Players know but they can’t say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone. It’s a dirty game within a game. #truth” It was reported Friday afternoon that Brown would meet with owner Art Rooney II in Florida to air out grievances and determine how both sides would move forward.  When a fan asked Brown if he would ever play for the Steelers again, this was his response: One fan asked Brown what he would tell people who say he only wants a new team to get a new contract: Another fan asked Brown about the last time he sat out during the Bengals game last season:
